We received an inspiring project from Northern Innovators Inc., who recently created a new concept in interior landscaping. Here is some information from the press release we were sent: “Smartwall is an art piece that can be customized into various textures and colors. Whether this artwork is green or has seasonal colors Smartwall gives you choice and flexibility for a look that will comfort and impress. Imagine a living wall where you create whatever you please by mixing and matching plants into one of a kind murals. Smartwall is self watering and plant material can be easily replaced. It is a smart solution for bringing low maintenance natural beauty into almost any location”. What an original method of keeping your your home healthy and green. And for those always looking to change things in their crib, this is a great color-shuffle idea. Prices for Smartwall begin at $300 and you can check out the company’s online shop here.
Sunken living rooms were all the rage in the 60s and 70s, but they can still be just as comfy and stylish in the aughts. With so many of us opting for open plan spaces these days, creating a casual but defined “conversation pit” is a fun way to break up your living room into manageable zones. Read on for some of our favorite inspiration rooms featuring cozy sunken living areas that we’d love to nestle up in.
Let’s get started with some styling inspiration from Urban Outfitters, a brand that offers an interesting array of wall-mounted shelving options. Many of them celebrate the best of geo style. Below we see a trio of shelving solutions, including the Bryn Mountain Display Shelf, pictured at the top right of the photo. Note how each of these shelves holds “like items,“ such as rocks, jewelry and other natural wonders. The styling of this Geo Triangle Shelf proves there’s power in empty space. You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
